of an ohio plumber who questioned mr. obama's tax plan four years ago. >> in the third debate, john mccain repeatedly alluded to joe the plumber, and the allegation that barack obama #-r would share the wealth. >> reid: jamieson says that gave mccain a boost in the polls, but as mccain later learned, even a memorable debate moment carries a candidate only so far. the live tv audience for the first obama-romney debate is expected to be about 60 million people. that's roughly half the number expected to vote in the election. the combination of shrinking finances and rising crime is forcing drastic change on camden, new jersey, a small city just across the delaware from philadelphia. tony guida has the details of a reorganization plan that would take veteran cops off the beat permanently. >> reporter: if camden had its own postcards, the picture would look look a lot like this-- police responding to the scene of a crime. with just 77,000 residents and 1500 violent crimes and 48 murders this year alone, camden has been called one of the most dangerous cities in america. now, in an unpreced
of three voters is over 65, romney trails president obama by four points. 51% to 47%. in ohio, romney is down eight points, 52% to 44%. and it gets about the same z mbers in virginia, eight points behind. in those three states, of senior voters who said medicare is extremely important 53% are going with president obama, 42% mitt romney. we asked dean reynolds to tell us more about the medicare factor. >> the first step to a stronger strcare is to repeal obamacare. oboos) because it represents the worst of both worlds! >> reporter: a week ago when republican vice presidential candidate paul ryan spoke about medicare to the american association of retired persons in new orleans, he got an earful. >> the law turned medicare boo into a piggy bank for obamacare! (boos) >> reporter: that frosty reaction is borne out in new polling, both by cbs news and others which found more people thought the president would do a better job handling medicare than governor romney. the "washington post" and kaiser foundation surveyed voters in virginia, ohio, and florida. in those states that found that saj
of foreign policy, whether or not president obama's policy towards iran, four years of trying to coax them into a discussion quid pro quo, if you stop pursuing a nuclear weapon hasn't worked. has that taken us closer to war? >> because it persuaded iranians they will cross the nuclear threshold while jerusalem and washington are squabbling with one another. a floats fer that some people, leon strot sky you may not be interested in war but war is interested in you. we may not be interested in going to war with iranians but a iranians may be interested in going to war with us. >> paul: if f mitt romney the last thing he want to do if he gets elected he wants to get into a war. he has to be focused on domestic agenda? >> that is what he is running on. iran is obviously down the road and abdication of anything in syria. that war is out of control. it's spilling into lebanon and iraq which we have completely abandoned. if mitt romney does get through this, he will be facing a dangerous world. >> paul: what should romney say to that he is a warmonger? >> i would regard it as infantile remark, su
barnes, walter. caller: thank you for taking my call. i voted for president obama four years ago. i am an independent. i don't care what the label is. i voted for president obama because he said george bush was unpatriotic for having an $8 trillion debt. four years later, he is not kept his promise. didn't do what he has promised. ot.ill give mitt romney a sh they get so brutally nasty and say -- the republicans want dirty air and dirty water. it is terrible stuff. most americans if you ask them basic questions, they don't have a clue. both sides people drown by these slogans. obama was saying hope and change. let's be part of history and led a black man become president. we will go from there. host: i wanted to follow-up on his comment by showing an ad from the romney campaign that deals with job loss and cuts in virginia. here's a look. [video clip] >> this president cannot tell us you're better off than when he took office. >> his defense cuts threaten over 130,000. the romney plan -- create over 340,000 jobs for virginia. host: more of your take on the economic message by mitt romn
is the obama staff telling the president to do? he hasn't debated if four years and it is very hard to debate in practice disa-- a sitting president. he needs to be sticking to the lines he is using on the stump that have not gotten him in trouble. the ones about the government want dog double down and bring back the same policies, he will just say that. you are not going to hear new stuff from the president. >> romney, you are right, obama will try to keep it from being controversial. romney has to engage the president in a different way, not personally, directly. he needs to engage the big issues when we talk about definition he needs to define the fact that, look, this is what i am going to do. if i am not, if i were him i would say i won't run for re-election if i fail you the way he did. he needs to have a vehicle to contrast the reality of what is going on and to put obama having to defend himself. he has the bigger tack. he has a bigger opportunity. >>gregg: doug, does romney need to be more specific on the five-point economic solution to the economy? >> he needs to be more specific so
your hands from in front of your eyes here. the latest poll in michigan has mr. obama up by four in michigan. which is a lot less than the 12-point and 14-point leads the
nader, a four-time presidential candidate, says president obama should be poised for a landslide victory, but swings control of congress dramatically back to democrats, but instead he's running a selfish campaign that's done little to help his party on capitol hill. in an interview,, mr. nader, also predicted a major shakeup in american politics by 2016 when a billionaire political messiah will be prepared to spend his own money to force choices in the next presidential election. host: that's in the "washington times" this morning, and this is also in the "washington times," "man behind insulting video arrested." a california man behind a crudely produced anti-islamic video that inflamed parts of the middle east was arrested thursday. host: back to your calls on media coverage of campaign 2012. david in illinois, independent line. hi, david. caller: hello. thank you for c-span. i think c-span is pretty fair in its coverage, but i think the liberal media is totally biased. we even have this on a local level. they just run the major networks with news coverage. you can see they tape obama
another four years of status quo that president obama is offering or do i want to set the country on a new course as it relates to job creation, a new course as it relates to the economy? >> sean hanity said last night he thinks this video is a bombshell. do you think it's a bombshell and will the romney campaign use it in television ads as the obama team has used that 47% video in television ads? >> i think that it was covered in 2007. i think a number of folks are going to continue to cover it today. how they cover it in that context, a lot of that is up to individual voters and whether they think it's relevant to the conversation we're having today. we believe, as a campaign -- i think governor romney believes what's most relevant are the president's policies and how they're affecting the economy today, how they're affecting people's bottom line, how they're affecting household incomes. that's a much more relevant debate that we're going to focus on as a campaign. >> kevin, if they do not see a new romney, will they see a romney offering specifics as to deductions that he might prefer i
. the next four years, if president obama is president obama again, what does the next four years look like in terms of his legislative priorities? >> the next four years is continuing on the path to growing this economy from the middle class out, investing in infrastructure, education, energy, implementing obamacare. there are many aspects left to be implemented so that all americans can fully realize the promise that was built by obamacare. so we are very excited about the next four years should president obama win, and we believe he will. >> thanks so much. appreciate your time on this sunday afternoon. >> thank you so much for having me. >>> everyone remembers the slogan "we like ike," but what does the former military general have in common with president obama? and what can mitt romney learn from him? the man who wrote the book on ike joining us up next. >>> plus, get aggressive or play defense? >> are you ready? >> i'm looking forward to the debates. i'll put it that way. >> we will break down debate strategy with our sunday brain trusts. well, i had all the classic symptoms... like
that support slipped for president obama? take a look at this, a poll in four important battleground states, specifically colorado, florida, ohio and virginia, among veterans, president obama is trailing governor romney by double digits by as much as 20%, party points in colorado and florida. how will this play out on election day? president of new heights communications and the former spokesperson to vermont governor dean and the senior vice president of box global, thank you for joining us. >> thanks for having me >> heather: this is the first time in 80 years, that neither ticket had a veteran in the running. traditionally republicans had the upper hand when it comes to the military vote. will that be the case this year too or can president obama turn these polls around? trey i'll start with you. >> you don't have to have military service to run for president. i've done a lot of political work in virginia it is a preference among veterans. neither of these candidates have it, no one started off with an advantage. for this voting demographic it comes down to trust in leadership. measuring
with barack obama, number one. and that what mitt romney has to do is convince people that four years from now a mitt romney presidency will be better for their personal lives. they understand on the likability question of which the president beats mitt romney so handily, they're not about to convince all these people suddenly to turn around and say, oh, we like mitt romney more than we like president obama. what they're going to try and do is say you like him enough and he can do the job and he's better able to fix things. so he's not going to try and be bill clinton here, i feel your pain. but what he's going to try to do is say i'm focused on your concerns. >> can a debate like tonight's debate really change the direction of this campaign? >> i think it can accelerate or decrease momentum one way or another. and i went back and looked at 2004 for example when you had john kerry and george bush. in sort of late september bush was ahead of kerry by about seven points. after the first debate it was a two-point margin because john kerry did very well. then george w. bush came back and did bette
-changing debate was 1980, 32 years ago. four years ago, when john mcgain and barack obama had their first debate, obama was up 50-45 before the debate when it was said and done he was up 51-45. four years earlier when kerry and bush went at it, kerry won the first debate, no impact on the horse race numbers the only thing that changed this gives a good perspective, after kerry won the debate, kerry supporters said debates are really important. bush supporters said, not so much. >> gregg: i want to go back to what you pointed out. i remember it well the carter-reagan debate in 1980. democrats and carter had tried to portray ronald reagan as this crazy actor with dangerous views going to create armageddon in the cold war with the soviets. suddenly, america tens of millions of americans tuned into the debates and they said wait a minute, this guy is likeable, making a lot of sense -- >> charming, right. >> gregg: let's compare that to today. the president has been trying to, with attack ads demonize mitt romney as this sort of horrible businessman. might this debate be comeable? -- compareable? >>
supporters you can drop your hands from in front of your eyes here. the latest poll in michigan has mr. obama up by four in michigan. which is a lot less than the 12-point and 14-point leads the president has also had in michigan polls there this month. but for what it's worth, i should also tell you we have national polls. for the national polls mitt romney supporters it's time for the finger vision. president obama up by five points. that's the fox news poll. the gallup dayly tracking poll had been quite close recently. now gallup shows president obama up by six. even really quite ostentatiously republican leaning rasmussen poll gives president obama a one-point advantage nationally. basically across the board in the polls that matter, in the states that matter, the obama campaign is ahead. things could change. we've got the debate starting next week. it's a long way to go, it's politics. anything could happen. right now the obama campaign is solidly and consistently ahead. tactically what that means is the obama campaign has to convert being ahead in people's preferences to actual votes. s
an asterisk is that in four years, no new gun control laws have been enacted. in fact, under obama's watch, concealed weapons are now allowed on amtrak trains and in national parks. >> he's continued to pay lip service to those things. but he hasn't shown real leadership in pursuing those changes. >> reporter: yes, background checks have gotten more thorough under obama. where people legally buying guns in gun shops. but the big problem remains gun shows and the internet. specifically, unlicensed dealers selling firearms to buyers with no background check needed. president obama has supported closing the gun show loophole in the past. but the white house says his focus now is on existing laws. governor romney says no to any further regulation of gun shows. >> there's no particular change in law that's going to keep people who are intent on doing harm from doing harm. >> the majority of gun owners would agree that we should do everything possible to prevent criminals and fugitives from purchasing weapons. >> reporter: so while president obama says he wants tougher gun laws, little was done
debates have not moved the numbers all that much. four years ago when barack obama debated john mccain, mccain was down by five points when he went into his debate, and when he came out of the debate, he was down by six points. virtually no change. i think events on the ground, perceptions of the economy, economic news, perhaps things from the middle east still could have a bigger impact than these debates. cheryl: scott rasmussen, it's fascinating to see what your numbers are showing us, and they have been changing over the last several weeks. scott, thank you. >> thank you, cheryl. cheryl: well, still to come, everyone, ann coulter is going to be joining me with a look at her new book, "mugged." and coming up next, getting criticized from the inside. william isaac is going to tell us how washington failed america during the massive financial crisis. ally bank. why they're always there to talk. i love you, james. don't you love me? i'm a robot. i know. i know you're a robot! but there's more in you than just circuits and wires! uhhh. (cries) a machine can't give you what a person can. tha
that four more years of the obama administration is four more years the country can't afford. president obama saying that mitt romney and the republicans are offering the same kind of politics that get us into this mess in the first place. gregg: santita jackson joins us and brad blakeman joins us, former deputy assistant to george w. bush. santita let me start with you. americans are very unhappy with the economy, the president says he's unhappy too. is his challenge to explain how the next four years would be any different? and if you look at his convention speech i'm not sure there is any difference. >> you know i think that his great challenge is the same challenge that governor romney faces tomorrow night, which is to be relaysable an rerelatable and likable. likability really does matter. gregg: you don't think people really want specifics, tell me mr. president how the next four years is any different. >> you know, gregg you have to balance style with substance. the fact is they'll have to run against their narrative in a time of great economic want. you've got a very, very wealt
for sending jobs to china. we need more common sense. >> president obama won indiana by just one point four years ago, but is not expected to win the state this time around. the strategy is to tie don donnell lee to obama. >> hoosiers have a choice. continue down the path of donnelly and obama. >> joining me tonight is joe donnelly, the congressman from indiana who is challenging the tea party candidate. good to have you with us tonight. you're going up against the candidate who really underscores what washington has been for the last couple years. does that play in your favor? >> yeah, he has been incredibly reckless, ed. one statement after another. hoosiers are not buying his extreme agenda. if you want to see the extremes to where he's gone, this is after the primary, he said lugar betrayed conservatives. lugar is an indiana hero. he worked nonstop to make the world safer by reducing nuclear weapons. we have seen just the comments that you said about bipartisanship. richard has said medicare is unconstitutional, that social security is unconstitutional. he has said that employer health
with obama for four years. now they can say we can tax you for doing nothing. i will give the other party a try. i will let the republicans have this one and see what they can do in a few years. if they suck, my vote will change again. host: interesting call. now we are on the line in pennsylvania with pstill phylis. turn down the tv. caller: hi. host: you are an independent. what are you thinking right now? caller: i will not vote for biden. he sounds crazy, always granting. nothing he says makes sense to me. as far as obama, i watch him. when he went overseas and talk about how we need to apologize for everything we do. and then i heard an interview that he gave with someone when he said that after his mother- in-law had surgery that it would be a good idea if an older person lived on pain pills instead of having their problem taken care of. another thing, and egos around the country and talks, he looks almost like the rabble-rousers' when he goes around the country, it looks almost like a rabble rouser. host: gene is an independent. good morning at. -- jean. caller: i will not vote for
obama and now president obama did in the democrat primary four years ago as well as mitt romney had debates four years ago and also in this most recent primary. president obama does have the advantage of having done the one on one with john mccain four years ago. he went one on one with mccain. he did very well. most would say he beat john mccain. so i think -- i think the onerous is on president obama. >> the director of debates at southern illinois university wrote an op-ed for cnn and said both have strengths and weaknesses and this will be one of the most important presidential debates we've seen in history. here's how he outlines it. when you talk about romney's strength he says he's smooth, knowledge able, excellent first lines and tends to pivot. he says president obama, his strengths, he can be detached, he has an ability to focus and crystallize that's very strong on his reasoning. donna, do you see either one of these as being accurate here? do you think that there's some sort of opportunity, if you will for the president to attack on romney's strengths or is he pretty for
numbers showing president obama ahead by eight points in iowa and four points in florida. while the swing state map is what everybody is watching the swing states are the most important to keep an eye on because that's where you wrap up the votes that allow you to win the election, there's new national polling now for what it's worth. there's new polling every day. the republican leaning poll is out with their new national numbers today. their national tracking poll putting president obama up by one point nationally. the gallup tracking poll putting president obama up by three points today nationally. that's in big picture perspective of what's going on in the presidential race. for an even bigger picture perspective on those national numbers, i should point out to you that of the last 20 national presidential polls, of the 20 national polls taken in the month of september, every single one of those it 20 polls shows president obama winning nationally. the range varies from one point up to eight points in some other polls. but 20 straight national polls showing president obama ahead. that
. a new quinnipiac university poll of likely voters shows president obama leading mitt romney by four points, 49-45. >> last night in denver, romney was endorsed by local football hero john elway. romney told the crowd that the debates will be crucial to the campaign. >> these debates are an opportunity for each of us to describe the pathway forward for america that we would choose. and the american people are going to have to make their choices as to what kind of america they want. >> jan crawford is covering the romney campaign in denver. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, charlie. this is romney's moment. the campaign knows the stakes here. of course, he's done this before. there were those 23 debates in the republican primaries, but this is different. it's one-on-one, and part of his debate prep has been working on that head-to-head match-up with senator rob portman playing president obama. on the campaign plane the other day, romney came back to talk to reporters and i asked him point-blank if he thinks he can win. he said look, the president has been trying to fool people
